"Tom Leahy: The Host" part one. This is the first section of the complete student made documentary film on Tom Leahy who played "The Host" on the Wichita, KS horror host show "The Host and Rodney". The show ran on and off in Wichita from the late 1950's clear through to the 1990's, featuring Tom throughout the entire run. In 1986 a student, Jeff Kilian, decided to make this documentary as his senior film studies project, writing the script and even getting another Wichita movie host Jim Erickson to do the narration. Because of the amount of views the excerpt that is already posted has gotten, here is the complete version with interviews of Tom Leahy.
